I am running version 1.41 +b1 I think it is in main repo? or i installed it from a deb I dont remember. Anyways am getting random shutdowns on Dell Latitude D830 so was hoping an update to version 1.43 would help? Could you offer it in repo please?

Maybe you want to get it from Debian testing repo: https://packages.debian.org/testing/utils/i8kutils

Doesn't seem to have any dependency issue in MX 18.

I backported them for the test repo. Get them early here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1XDoIl ... pxdlhk1o3k

Just an update! After installing the 1.43 version my newly replaced fan now works the way it should ( fan speed displayed & controlling temp as needed) Phew! not ready to part with this great workhorse yet!

Thanx for your help.
